  1. Good morning Father,
    I write just to make a quick comment on the change of the look of your blog site. I liked the old look better.
    It won’t stop me from visiting every day to read the new content. Your writings are an inspiration to me and many others.
    I will get used to the new look, will just take a little time.

    God Bless!

  2. Community in action, really? What does that mean? Is that secet code for SJW? I realize that you this is propaganda courtesy of the ADW. Carry on, nothing to see here.

  3. Msgr. Pope,

    I really enjoyed your homily yesterday (3/10) and I wanted an opportunity to ask if you had ever read ‘The Grand Inquisitor’ by Fyodor Dostoevsky and, if so, how you felt about the author’s insight into the temptations put to Jesus.

    Thank you, Andrew

  4. Reading the comments concerning your new format brings back memeories of C. Flowerday. Keep up the good work Monsignor. Life is like a box of sugar free mixed chocolats. You never know what you’re going to get but you know artificial sweetness by the unpleasant aftertaste it leaves with you.

  5. Msgr. Pope,
    Your blog is wonderful. Thank you for the piece of music, to which the comments are (sadly) closed.
    I appreciated both your thoughts and some specific details of which I had been unaware.
    Keep up the work, and blessings!

  6. Good morning Father,
    I feel such a sense of comfort in your writings. I am so joyful after reading you’re blog. I know there are those who cynically read this, and I confess I am riddled with that sin at times. But you help me see “that I remain confident of this, I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”
    Peace be with you.

  7. Here is my two cents. I just visited this site the first time today. I didn’t see the old site that others mentioned preferring, but I do want to say, that before I even read the article, I was very struck by the beauty of the site picture in a positive way. I even took a second look at it because I wondered why it stirred something in me. I grew up in the evangelical Christian tradition which had very different church interiors. The somber, yet elegant interior set a serious and reverent tone. By the picture, I expected to read something hopefully grounded in orthodox Christianity and thoughtful.
